MATRA Rule of Law Training Programme

Ten-day training programme for 36 civil servants from 10-19 May 2017

The Matra Rule of Law Training Programme is a two-year (2017 – 2018) programme designed to strengthen institutional capacity in the fields of Rule of Law within government organisations in the Western Balkan, Turkey, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova. To this end seven training programmes are offered per year, each introducing the participants to Dutch best practices in a wide range of rule of law themes.

Through interactive sessions combining theory, practical skills and study visits, policy advisors, members of the judiciary and other civil servants working in the government and justice sectors acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to drive reforms in their home countries.

The programme is designed and delivered by the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, Leiden Law School, and The Hague Academy for Local Governance, and is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.

The first training will kick off from May 10 – May 19 2017 and the theme is ‘Integrity of civil servants’. Corruption is a key challenge for the rule of law and good governance in Europe. In addition to prosecuting corruption cases, it is essential to establish an institutional and legal framework to promote the integrity for civil servants and prevent corruption. Moreover, civil servants need to be trained on how to manage and communicate about integrity dilemmas.

Application period is open to Albanian Civil servants only from 7 March – 23 March through
